SciMaTech Resource Center
The CESA 10 SciMaTech Resource Center provides leadership, hands-on equipment, teaching modules and resources for CESA 10 member school districts.
Four Key Functions of the SciMaTech Resource Center:
- Provide a lending library of science, math and technology resources and equipment, housed in the CESA 10 IMC.
- Support regional professional development in mathematics, science, and technology via IIA/VA and Cray Academy. Key projects include JASON Project, Focus on Mathematics, Science Inservices, and Academic Reviews.
- Support in-district leadership and consultation in curriculum planning and change in mathematics and science content areas.
- Provide equipment and in-district program support in Space Science via the Starlab Portable Planetarium program. 2009-10 Starlab Schedule
The JASON project is a joint CESA 10 SciMaTech and GT Project in West Central Wisconsin. Each year, unique expeditions are designed to explore cutting-edge science based on a specific location and theme. The JASON project is designed for fifth through eighth grades students of all abilities. It includes a specially designed curriculum and access to an award-winning interactive website at http://www.jasonproject.org. Teachers will receive cutting-edge science lessons designed by researchers from the expedition site at a regional inservice. Discover how popular literature can be used to excite students’ interest in History, Environmental Science and Biology. 8th grade students and a lead teacher can participate in a Student Argonaut program.
